Now that Christmas and New Year are over, you may be looking at your bank balance and... screaming a little. For we all go a little over the top over the festive period; one pack of mince pies won't do when you can get two at a great price; who wants a bag of sweets when we can get an entire tin?
Yet, despite the fact that we're all usually at our poorest in January, the high street is suddenly awash with red signs shouting 'sales' and 'great savings' at every turn. It's all just too tempting for a weak-willed woman such as myself! Of course I can afford those three photo frames! They're 33% off you know!
However, it is all too easy to be seduced by the 'big names' as they shout about their savings during every ad break. Yet Haverhill's independent businesses have also slashed their prices this January, which means that not only can you buy without worrying too much about your bank balance, but you can support local businesses at the same time!
Get that Valentine's gift sorted earlier, for less
It may only be the middle of January but Valentine's Day will be here before we know it! So why not take advantage of sales prices and get that special gift now?
Tony Strowger Jewellers have up to 50% off men's and women's jewellery, watches and cufflinks until January 24th 2013. However, stock is selling fast, so make sure you get down to the Haverhill jewellery store fast to grab a bargain.
Alternatively, if you or a loved one is feeling the pain (and your clothes are feeling the strain) of an indulgent Christmas and New Year, a treatment at Haverhill beauty salon, a revolution is the perfect antidote. And this January, not only will you have the opportunity to detox, revitalise and firm up your body, but you can also save 20% on all luxurious body treatments.
Now, this is what we call a practical saving!
You may be sick to the back teeth of turkey but Kedington Butchers is giving you the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of other meat for less.
From now until the end of January, any two packs of chicken breasts, lamb cutlets, pork steaks, braising steak, casserole steak, sausages or mince are just £5. This mix and match offer can be used in-store or if you really don't want to venture out into the snow, call the local butcher to have your meat delivered to your door for free!
Treat your home
It's all very well to rejuvenate your body and stock your fridge, but if your bathroom is looking worse for wear, relaxation may not be the first thing on your mind when lying in the bath... (oh look, the grouting needs to be redone...)
So why not take a look at Finishing Touch Interiors' fantastic January sale and save up to 60% on selected bathroom suites?
